Conclusion: The ECS A890GXM-A Black Edition is a fine example of an 890GX motherboard. The performance of the board was right up there with other 890GX boards and the board overclocked well. One issue with the ECS board was the lack of USB 3.0 support in terms of features of the board. USB 3.0 is rapidly becoming the standard for motherboards, along with SATA 6 Gb/second ports. This board has all of the connections necessary to build a HTPC including DP, DVI, HDMI and VGA ports.
